Two men were arrested on drug charges today following an investigation that resulted in the seizure of more than six kilos of methamphetamine.
Anthony Allen Kellog, 38, and James Orville Haynes, 41, both of Shreveport, were arrested following an investigation by the Caddo-Shreveport Narcotics Unit and DEA Task Force. Both men were booked into the Caddo Correctional Center on federal charges of conspiracy to possess methamphetamine with the intent to distribute, said Caddo Sheriff Steve Prator and Shreveport Police Chief Ben Raymond.
Caddo Sheriff's deputies attempted to stop Kellog's vehicle on I-220 at Shreveport Blanchard Highway this afternoon. Kellog refused to stop and led deputies on a high speed pursuit. As he crossed over the I-220 bridge into Bossier City, Kellog attempted to throw a large black bag into the river; however, the bag fell to the shoulder and was recovered by authorities. The bag contained 3,055 grams of suspected methamphetamine. Kellog stopped his vehicle between Airline Drive and Swan Lake Road and was taken into custody.
During a follow-up investigation, agents conducted a search at Haynes' residence at 4435 Bullen Street in Shreveport. Approximately 3,517 grams of methamphetamine, several hundred dosage units of Xanax, 63 grams of marijuana and $7,000 in cash were recovered from a boat, a shed, and several vehicles on the property.
The estimated street value of 6,572 grams of methamphetamine is $657,200.
Assisting with the investigation were the Louisiana State Police, Bossier City Police Department, Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office, Caddo Parish Sheriff’s Office K-9 Unit, and Shreveport Police K-9 Unit.
